Weight Loss Support: One-to-One Sessions
~ Do you feel out of control of your eating?

~ Would you benefit from personalised one-to-one support?
If you want to develop a healthier relationship with food, feel more in charge of your eating or put an end to yo-yo dieting, it’s vital that you invest in yourself. To have a good relationship with food, you need to have a good relationship with yourself. It’s also important to wipe the slate clean, to take off the old diet hat that may have caused self-limiting beliefs to develop as you’ve watched yourself fail diet after diet. That said, it’s also important to remember that it’s not actually you failing at the diet, but the diet failing you! By wiping the slate clean you’re also aiming to put behind you your memories of an ongoing cycle of weight loss and weight gain. If you focus on addressing your underlying eating habits, weight loss can be a positive by-product. I help to empower individuals by teaching them knowledge and skills, and encouraging them to go on a journey of self-discovery to obtain insight. Awareness is power, and it’s through awareness and being prepared to go within and embrace new ways of thinking that positive change can happen. We’re all different, so we all need a personalised, tailor-made approach.
My weight loss support service (face-to-face or online) is for people who are looking for personalised, one-to-one sessions. The sessions focus very much on individual client needs and are based on the concepts of mindful eating. They can focus on the psychological factors associated with your eating patterns (such as emotional eating), enabling us to create strategies to help you adopt a healthier relationship with food, or they can focus more on your actual diet, where we might discuss nutritional aspects and work together on creating personalised meal plans with specific meal and snack ideas. Therefore, the sessions might focus more on psychological aspects or more on the nutritional aspects, or they might address a mixture of the two.

Working together, we will explore and identify any current barriers to weight loss that could be playing a role in your eating and relationship with food, and come up with some strategies to help you. We will also address any unhelpful attitudes, beliefs and thought patterns and help you to find a more flexible, ‘middle-way’ approach.
Review from a client:-
“My mindful eating sessions with Emma have made a huge and lasting difference to how I feel about food and myself more generally. When I booked my first session I was feeling desperate. My struggle with food had been ongoing for as long as I could remember and while I had had success dieting in the past, the weight always piled back on plus some, making me feel like a failure. I wanted a way off the yoyo diet roundabout but couldn’t see a way out on my own. Mindful eating is not a quick fix but has helped me explore and understand my relationship with food and helped me understand how small but consistent changes can help me take control of my diet. Emma is very easy to open up to and never judgemental. She has been able to give me a different way to look at things and some useful suggestions to try out which over time have helped me to regain control of my diet or rather loosen the tight grip of control on my diet and end the endless struggle between ‘good’ eating and ‘bad’ eating. Mindful eating is a tool for life and not a quick fix diet. I am still a work in progress but I feel so much more positive about myself after my sessions with Emma and I feel like the weight that I have lost will stay off for the long term”.
Flexibility of Sessions
To receive the full benefit, it is recommended (but not compulsory) that clients attending one-to-one sessions complete a minimum of four sessions (taken weekly, fortnightly or monthly)- this is because implementing new eating / lifestyle habits can take time, and clients benefit from ongoing support and regular reviews of their progress. The number of sessions required will also depend very much on individual needs and preferences.
If clients choose to see me ongoing for multiple sessions, they have the option of reducing session frequency. For example, they might start off with weekly or fortnightly sessions, but further down the line they might choose to see me for reviews or ‘check-ins’ once a month or once every 6-8 weeks.
From my experience of working with clients, several sessions over time is much more effective than just one or two sessions over a short period, as building new and sustainable habits can take time. Regular sessions over a few months offer the client a great opportunity to receive ongoing support, develop and consolidate skills and knowledge, maintain motivation and re-visit or ‘tweak’ strategies for any particular challenges they might be facing.
I offer text/Whatsapp/email support as part of the service between sessions to help keep clients motivated, supported and focused.
